Writing Assignment #1:

1) Corporate governance has had an interesting history, ranging from the purely neo-classical economic interpretation of fiduciary duty to more progressive notions of stakeholder Director responsibility. Based upon the roughly two hundred year history to date, what prognostications can you offer as to the future of corporate governance--what is the direction and what are the trends?


2) Outline and elaborate the variety of factors--legal, social, ethical, and managerial--that Directors must take into account as they determine where there duties lie with respect to corporate governance.
